Whether your’e dining at an exquisite restaurant, or laughing over a glass of wine while sitting on a dock, never underestimate the effect of beautifully paired food and wine. Hopefully, you were lucky enough to watch Gunn’s Hills Artisan Cheese and Pilliteri Estates’ wine and cheese pairing demonstration on August 1st. Their knowledge and products allowed for customers to expand their skills and experience new pairings to share with others. In case you missed this demonstration, or perhaps viewed it but forgot what that perfect pair was, we have listed the pairings for you!

To further improve your wine and food pairings, we have collected some staple rules to follow when deciding which products will accent one and other best.
- The wine served should always be sweeter than its accompanying dish.
- Match the intensity of flavours.
- Do not pair acidic wines with cream based sauces.
- When pairing wine with meals, match the wine to the main course rather than the starter.
